Path-breaking successes could have been achieved and we could have got our loving and caring nature once again. But again came the greed of humanity, now it was competitive greed. As developed countries were blamed to be the main culprit they saw themselves drawn into a web of monetary loss. They started bargaining with the developing ones to share the responsibility. Passing the buck game is going on and world for humanity is shrinking every day.
Globalisation has touched the lives of the common man. Rural society is no exception. The smart jeans and t-shirt clad rural youth signifies the impact the western world has. The increasing queues at the ATM machines , use of cellphones, internet and use of Hinglish exemplifies globalization in the social sphere of the rural community. People enjoying fast foods like noodles can be found on the stalls next to road. listening to western music on their cellphones is a clear example of the western impact on the rural youth. But the question is that has this outward façade of a new smart, consumerist avatar of the rural society contributed to better socio-economic conditions of the people. The social condition of the women hasn’t changed much. Most of the rural population still lives from hand to mouth. Suicide of farmers is still as relevant as it was before liberalization. The rural society has still to go a long way.
But is the end of the world? Recently, a journalist who was a victim of said that she wanted to leave this episode behind and go back to work as soon as possible.

But had this incident taken place in a village where Khap panchayat exists, the stigma attached would be so high that it might have led to suicide or vegetative state of the victim.

But these international agreements are being constantly and shamelessly flouted by powerful industrialized nations with scant regard to the environmental degradation. Kyoto protocol has not been signed by USA. Developing countries are being pressurised at international forums to reduce green house emissions whereas transfer of technology to developing country by developed countries to reduce emission remains a distant dream. Pressure to sign treaties to ban nuclear weapon is constantly given on developing countries even when developed countries like USA and Russia account for 95% of the existing nuclear warheads. Passing the buck to developing and least developed countries for greenhouse gas emission and blame game are conspicuous at international forums.
Starting with the 6996 economic reforms: Liberalisation, Privatization and Globalisation(LPG), brought in a host of new actors in Indian democratic interplay., including private national and international mass media. Though these actors were incidental to the process, they have been able to shape the popular opinion or democratic voice significantly in India through both reporting and misreporting. The ouster of Congress, saviour in times of economic crisis, can be attributed to the latter. Contrary to the then popular perception, economy fared much better post-reforms and this ouster was the first paradox. For, greater awareness and consequent empowerment should have strengthened democratic decision-making: the contrary is noted.
Support of underworld and criminals and candidates having pending criminal cases has led to criminalization of politics. Use of criminals to get even and remove competition in election is widely used by political parties. According to a survey, almost one third of the sitting MPs have criminal cases pending against them. It’s a shame that with a population of one billion we are unable to produce 557 honest candidates.

Though there is a vast economic gap between the developed and developing countries, there is no reason to believe that health indicators can be improved.

The dynamic politics was also a factor in keeping away the motivated youth in joining elections. In various states and at the center, dynastic politics has taken root. This trend has accentuated in the decades of 95s and thereafter. Yadav families in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, Badals in Punjab etc. have successfully entrenched themselves in the political life. Inner party democracy is missing in political functioning. Leaders are drawn on the basis of their ascribed quality like lineage rather than relying on achieved educational status or mass following. This reactionary trend of neo-monarchism in a nation based on democratic values of equality and inclusiveness remains a handicap in building important precedents for posterity.
